This Cinnamon Maple Brown Butter Blackberry Peach Crisp is overflowing with sweet summer peaches, blackberries, and a double amount of that maple butter cookie-crisp on top. This easy fruit crisp is the perfect way to enjoy the summertime fruit you have on hand. The peaches and blackberries are juicy, while the topping is swirled with notes of brown butter, sweetened with warming maple and brown sugar, and perfectly crisp. Top with vanilla ice cream for the best peachy, berry-filled dessert to kick off summer!

And just like that, we’ve entered into the summer fruit season. And I, for one, am so excited about it. I know it’s a little early in the peach season, especially if you’re in the south, but around here the peaches and berries have officially arrived at the grocery store and I couldn’t resist picking up a few bushels full.

Early in the peach season is really when I love to bake with peaches the most. Right now, they’re not at their sweetest, so I find that baking with them is the perfect thing to do. Especially since we’re already adding sugar…not to mention that baking them draws out their sweetness even more.

When I saw I had a fridge full of peaches, I knew I wanted to bake with them this week. I have a couple of peach cobbler recipes, but not many crisp recipes, so that pretty much answered that.

A peach crisp it was!

The blackberries were added simply because Asher and I were just saying how much we LOVE blackberries. To me, the combination of peaches and roasted blackberries is such a delicious one.

The details are pretty easy

This is a quick three-step process. Start with the fruit. Fresh peach and blackberries tossed together with brown sugar and vanilla. Many people will add in some kind of citrus for a little acidity, but I wanted to keep this crisp extra sweet and rich, so I went the vanilla route.

Add a touch of cornstarch to create a nice thick and juicy sauce.

The secret here is the brown sugar, butter, sweet peaches, and berries. The peaches bake down and create the most incredible caramel-like sauce.

Even without the crisp topping, the peaches and baked blackberries alone are simply delish. But of course, that crisp topping just adds that extra special touch.

That crisp topping?

It’s very important, and it took me a while to get just right. I really really wanted it to be more cookie-like with a very nice crunch and not soggy in any way.

I find that a lot of crisp toppings can be a little cakey and soggy, so my goal was to avoid sogginess. The topping consists of flour, oats, cinnamon, brown sugar…and yup, butter. Peaches can use a little extra buttery love every now and then, you know?

Sprinkle the crumble over the fruit, bake, and about an hour later you’ll have the perfect summer fruit crisp. The topping is so much like a crisp brown sugar cookie…so delicious. The cinnamon maple butter that’s drizzled over top halfway through cooking is the real secret. It caramelizes the top and makes a crisp that is truly sweet, buttery, and CRISP.

What I love so much about a recipe like this is that you can really use whatever fruit you have on hand. I love using the mix of sweet peaches and blackberries. But you can certainly use other stone fruits. You can even go super simple and just use your favorite berry. It’s going to be juicy and delicious no matter what combo…or lack of combo…you choose.

The one thing you must do is serve this warm right out of the oven, while the juices are bubbling up, and everything is smelling incredible.

Lastly, make sure you add ice cream! A must with almost any fruit-based dessert, but especially a crisp, and especially during the summer.

This is a classic summertime dessert that really should be happening on a weekly basis all summer long!

Instructions

  • 1. Preheat the oven to 350° F. 
    2. In a large bowl, toss together peaches, blackberries, brown sugar, 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon (use 2 tsp for a thicker filling) cornstarch, and vanilla. Spread the fruit out into a 10-12 inch baking dish or cast iron skillet. 
    3. To make the topping, combine the oats, flour, brown sugar, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, and salt in a medium bowl. Add 8 tablespoons butter and cut the butter into the dry ingredients using a fork or pastry cutter. Sprinkle over the fruit. Cover with foil and bake 30 minutes. 
    4, Meanwhile, add 4 tablespoons butter to a small pot and set over medium heat. Allow the butter to brown lightly until it smells toasted, about 2-3 minutes. Remove from the heat and whisk in the maple syrup, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, and a pinch of salt. Remove the crisp from the oven, remove the foil, and drizzle the maple butter over the crisp. Bake, uncovered another 25 to 30 minutes. 
    5. Let cool slightly, then serve with ice cream.

  1. This is my third time making this crisp! it is so delicious and easy to put together. The second time i made it, i had blueberries instead of blackberries, and it was just as good. The maple butter glaze is the key. So delicious 🙂

  2. 5 stars
    We have made this three times and it has been awesome each time! This last time we had an apple to get rid of so I chopped it up and threw it in and it was just as yummy! I think you could adapt it to most fruit 🙂 thanks for a killer recipe!

  3. Hey Tieghan,

    this recipe is simply delicious and although you say it’s best served warm, I can tell you that it’s equally delicious on the third day after baking! I used frozen blackberries so I had a lot of juice in the end but it was as yummy as homemade jam.

    Thank you for all your hard work!

    Made for a girls night dinner and served with ice cream-so delicious! The leftovers were also good cold with some vanilla yogurt.

    Hey Tieghan,

    Another great recipe here so incredibly easy to make and not just as a dessert but breakfast many days. The cinnamon gave it a great nice warming touch but all the flavors were out of this world. I am not the biggest fan of blackberries so I went with blueberries instead which I love!! Honestly, I wish I still worked for a caterer so I can share your recipes. Like I’ve said like 90% of the things I cook come from you. I’ve yet to find another blog that matches your recipes and range of options thank you!! Any chance I get I’ll share your delicious creations.

      1. Hey Jem,
